It's possible it had something to do with running away when the Krauts hit and he bolted and hid until air support took out the Krauts and dropped a bomb on the platoon by mistake. Could be. But then there was Joe, who was the cook for the outfit, and made that pudding everyone loved.
So that's it, yeah. They're all asking for pudding.
